      I got T after a night at my pub's disco in April 2014. Sounds obvious, but I'm not exactly certain how I got it, because the morning after, not only did I have the Noise, but also a very block-y cold. I waited a few days, and it didn't go away.

      I suppose, beforehand, I did overdo my ears a bit too. I listened to lots of music nearly everyday, and also liked to listen to Audio Books/Dramas through earpods. I've stopped doing this for obvious reasons, but I am attempting to start listening to the Audios though alternative means.

      Then I went on the Internet (like many people, but honestly not the best was to start). And reading what ot said, I panicked and hoped it wasn't true.....for about a month or so... It was after a trip to Gloucester that I realised I had to accept it...though I have become able to ignore it, for the most part.

      I have been through treatments for it - Ear Syringing and Decongestant Tablets. Both have helped but have not yielded successful.

      In a few weeks, I'm going for an ENT appointment, but honestly, I'm not hopeful...

      I just want to be rid of it, like so many others, and it sounds unlikely, but I am hoping for a cure soon....ah well, little bit of senseless hopefulness never harmed anyone.... <<

      There are a few concerns that tend to pop up, so I'll probably be putting them up in the forums from time to time....

      T sucks. It might go away on its own but it will take months.

      I tend to think there will never be a cure in our life time.lot's of snake oil and false hopes but no cure.

      I disagree. There does apparently seem to be some promising work with Autifony....its even being given a fast track....

      I'll believe it when i see it. There's always something that works happening. But they never happen.
